Cranberry-Orange Quick Bread

Cranberry-Orange Quick Bread created by May I Have That Rec

This is my husband's very favorite quick bread I make, a great holiday gift, and is my most-requested at parties, especially around the holidays. It originally came from the Betty Crocker Cookbook, but I usually omit the nuts (although I love pecans with the cranberries) and have added a glaze onto it, which really seemed to give it that extra little zing. When I serve it for parties or brunches, I slice it, then cut the slices in half top to bottom; people seem satified with the smaller pieces (though they often go back for more!) and it serves more that way. I always try to keep a bag of cranberries in the freezer for just this recipe.

    I only had dried cranberries. I soaked them in hot water first. Came out great!

    Used my frozen cranberries and fresh squeezed o.j. Made 3 mini loaves. Skipped the glaze. Turned out great. Moist and yummy. It's a keeper

    I used dried cranberries because I had some that needed to be used, in guessing that’s why my bread turned out dry. This was just ok, if I make it again I will used fresh berries & add more sugar
